Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Performance and goal management are good to have, based on certain client requirements where the user base isn't too large, but the most workable domain of Taleo is the recruiting module.""Good integration capabilities and extensibility.""The stability of the solution is good.""The solution is stable and reliable.""The solution offers good benefits for administrators.""The Talent Acquisition and Headhunting features are good.""It is easy to use. Requisition management and pre-screening are the two most valuable features."

More Oracle Taleo Pros →

"One of the most wonderful features is the ability to customize the modules and workflows. So far, we've done a fair bit of customization and it is helping us a lot and really adds to the value we already get from SuccessFactors.""The self-service part is most valuable. Employees and managers can do a lot of things on their own, and they are not dependent on the HR organization.""We have found objects like Foundation and MDF most valuable.""The solution is very intuitive. Many of the things we need to do are easily accessible.""SAP SuccessFactors is a stable solution.""The UX in SAP SuccessFactors is good.""The features of the solution that I found valuable for my business are its ability to create a dashboard, pie charts, and reporting functions, as well as advanced reporting capabilities.""In terms of user experience, it is quite good."

More SAP SuccessFactors Pros →

Cons
"In terms of Oracle Taleo as a product, there are a lot of things which can be developed; most feedback which I have heard from customers is about the dashboard and the home page, both of which are quite basic.""There are always going to be little caveats here and there that you might not have known about as far as changes are concerned, however, it's not business-oriented to the point where the business shuts down.""Lacks some systems that we need.""The bulk recruitment feature does not work well.""I don't see very valuable features in this product because it has an old way of interpreting ATS. It should be more flexible in managing datasets and data searches. The screening data is a long process in Taleo.""It would be ideal if we could integrate the solution with Olympia. It would be helpful if we could add another support desk for an IT person. It would be great if the product was more interdisciplinary and could include IT.""The pricing could be improved."

More Oracle Taleo Cons →

"I would like to be able to configure objects from instances, not from import and export files.""The SAP SuccessFactors updates need to be more industry-specific because every industry has specific modules. What I want to be added to SAP SuccessFactors is a chat box where SAP staff can give support to users.""SAP SuccessFactors needs to improve the LMS and performance management.""Integration between Employee Central and Compensation in SAP SuccessFactors is one area of the solution that has room for improvement.""The complete integration process between SuccessFactors modules is not at the level that all customers expect when it comes to complete HR user experience from all angles.""Also, it would be helpful if they could improve its ability to localize the product to Nigeria.""There are some limiting aspects to this product.""SAP SuccessFactors' pricing structure could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Whether you pay annually or on some other payment schedule depends on the license model you choose. Typically, clients pay a yearly subscription."
  • More Oracle Taleo Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing fees are based on the number of modules that are being used, and the number of users."
  • "I don't want to comment on the license cost, to be honest. It could be about $1,000 approximately per customer. However, it's very flexible in terms of the licensing costs depending on the volume and depending on the deal of installation."
  • "If you go by best practices and do it right from the outset, the setup won't be a costly endeavor. In terms of setup, there is a lot of flexibility compared to three years ago."
  • "It could be cheaper."
  • "We have a yearly license. There are no additional costs."
  • "SAP SuccessFactors requires an annual subscription."
  • "It is not expensive because it is a complete suite with a module-based cost."
  • "For SAP, the product is pricey, both CAPEX and the OPEX. It's something that could be improved."
